Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series

Florence Mahoney Lecture on Aging

The annual Mahoney Lecture is named in honor of Florence Stephenson Mahoney (1899­-2002), who devoted the last half of her life to successfully advocating for the creation of the National Institute on Aging and increased support for NIH.

Dr. Schadt is an expert on the generation and integration of very large-scale sequence variation, molecular profiling and clinical data in disease populations for constructing molecular networks that define disease states and link molecular biology to physiology. During his lecture, Dr. Schadt will focus on the integration of the digital universe of information to better diagnose, treat, and prevent human disease. The lecture will feature the work of Dr. Schadt and his team at the Icahn Institute, which seeks to understand the vast network of genes, proteins, metabolites, and environmental factors that drive the function of the human body.

Ethics Rounds

“Whole Exome Sequencing in the Clinical Setting: Implications for Research”

The use of whole exome sequencing in the clinical setting has the potential to significantly increase the amount of information available to patients. When this information conflicts with information obtained in the research setting, investigators are faced with the question of whether they should pursue follow-up testing. Please join us to discuss to what extent researchers are responsible for their subjects’ clinical care and to what extent researchers should conduct testing for clinical purposes

The program should be of interest to individuals involved in medical research, as well as those interested in important issues in bioethics.

Presenter: Julie C. Sapp, ScM, CGC, National Human Genome Research Institute

Discussant: Jeffrey Botkin, MD, MPH, Professor of Pediatrics and Adjunct Professor of Human Genetics, and Associate Vice President for Research Integrity, University of Utah

Attendees will be international leaders in research on underlying pathology and therapeutic interventions in cerebral palsy, those with expertise in research methodologies from this and other related fields that have a high potential for providing the necessary data, representatives of families of children with CP and adults with CP, research funding organizations, professional organizations, and relevant federal agencies. There will be an emphasis on goals of research and current gaps, and additional methodologies complementary to Randomized Controlled Trials to address the gaps, including: the exploration of large data solutions, comparative effectiveness designs, and studies that will incorporate the complexity and variability of patients and interventions and their separate and combined effects on outcomes.
